Image Gets Rights to ‘Damned By Dawn’19 Aug, 2010 By: Billy Gil
Image Entertainment has gotten rights to horror film Damned By Dawn, which is said to pay homage to the “Evil Dead” franchise and Hammer Horror films.
“Damned By Dawn is full of fright and fun,” said Mark Ward, VP of acquisitions for Image Entertainment. “The film is sure to become a cult classic and we’re proud to be adding it to the Image Entertainment lineup for 2010.”
From Australian director Brett Anstey (The Amazing Krypto Bros.), the film follows a girl who, after receiving a mysterious gift from her dying grandmother, takes her new boyfriend to visit her family in an isolated home, where they are haunted by the Screaming Banshee and her army of undead. The horror-fest darling is an official selection at Fright Fest and A Night of Horror International Film Festival, and was shown at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival. There’s no word yet on a DVD release date.
